Homegrown Goggle Anti-Fog Techniques


Twowheeladdiction

I know that there are plenty of specialty anti-fog products you can buy, but here's my list of homegrown anti goggle fog techniques I've used, know of others that have used or read about:

Soap

Take a bar of non-abraisive soap and soak it in a bit of hot water for a few minutes to soften it up (liquid soap works just as good). Once soft, scrape off a bit of the softened soap and put a light film of soap on the inside of the goggle lens. Once the film is dry, carefully buff the lens clear with a soft cloth. This is usually good for several hours of riding.

Taters

This technique must have been the brainchild of Idaho potato farmers, but it does work. Cut a slice off a spud and carefully rub the white part on the inner lense of the goggle. Like the soap technique, let the spud juice dry and buff the lense clear with a soft cloth. If you want, bake up the rest of the spud and eat it for dinner. I prefer lots of sour cream & bacon bits. :thumbsup:

Spit

I read that skin divers use this technique, but in my experience, it will get you by in a pinch, but not as effective as others (doesn't last very long).

Car Wax

Wax On! Wax Off! Just about everyone has some of this stuff in their garage and it does work pretty well. Just make sure to use wax, not paint cleaners as they'll scratch your goggle lens.

DUAL LENS

You can purchase either a goggle that already has a dual pane lens, or get just the lens and replace your single goggle lens. I buy the basic scott 83 series goggles and then get the dual for it and swap. in really tough conditions ( all winter in the wet pacific northwest) I keep a "winter" goggle ready that has a dual pane lens AND some of the foam over the upper vents removed too. no need to worry about dust anyway.

      WARNING: On Oakley lenses (not sure if all) there is a thin plastic coating on the inside, probably for anti-fog. The plastic in these stickon lenses will make that thin coat sticky. I was able to remove the coating with lots of hot water and paper towels, which probably ruined the lens anti-fog. We'll see. I removed it since it was already messed up by the stickon lenses. Did not see this issue on the Scott lenses I have used so far.
       
      Stick on Bifocals by Zcifi Lenses +2.00 - 3 Packs

       
      Just get wet and apply to goggle lens. Sticks there forever, but will just peel right off, no glue used (just surface tension). Get a new lens? Just peel off, wet, and reuse. Fantastic product.
      Been using these since Feb. 2016, so just over one year. This pair has stuck on perfectly all that time. In the photo they have air behind them because I pulled the lens and washed it hard in the sink. Just add a drop of water and they will stick right back down perfectly. When I had them in the goggles and washed them with windex they never came undone. Stayed on perfectly.
      2.0 diopters is a good magnification for me. I can read my GPS, trail maps, make carb adjustments, wrench on the bike, all without removing my goggles. Overall a fantastic product that costs about $13.50 each if you buy a 3-pack.

      Hey all, I am a rider in the Pacific Northwest. Just a casual trail rider but really like riding. My eyes have been progressively getting worse over the years so I am no longer comfortable with contact lenses and good glasses when I ride. I hate goggles as they instantly fog up even when I anti fog the crap out of them.  Wrap around glasses have been my go to for years. My question is, is anyone using an insert or wrap around style glasses with inserts or anything like that? My script is so strong I can't use wrap around lenses normally. Has anyone got any advice?? Thanks !!!

      Whats the difference between the Crowbar and Mayhem goggle? I have a Bell Moto-9, and I want to make sure they fit. Sometimes with these goggles they come down to far on my nose, and kinda cuts of breathing....
